In times of extremely volatile markets, the traditional methods and tools are no longer enough to tackle the challenges of the digital world. Individuals and companies need to adapt to changes in an agile manner, being able not only to follow trends but at best to trigger and lead them.
Following the “training from the back of the room"-technique, participants will learn how to develop and implement innovative and agile working processes for their team and organization. They will get familiar and work with the agile mindset that consists of a set of values and principles as well as several frameworks, methodologies, and tools. Through the agile mindset leaders from all sectors are enabled to navigate complex, uncertain, and fast changing environments.
This workshop will be held in English language.

One of our main challenges is to manage the regular release of our mobile apps, a process that involves ten contributing teams.
